My ability to talk with fish is of no help, Wonder Woman!


I’m not sure what recently reminded me of this Cartoon Network interstitial (new word for me, by the way) featuring Aquaman, Wonder Woman and the Powerpuff Girls. I hadn’t seen it in ages. (We don’t actually get Cartoon Network now, sadly. Just bottom of the barrel basic cable. which means no Comedy Central or SciFi, either. Sigh.) But thanks to the marvels of YouTube, I was able to watch it once more. (Actually more than once.) And since it’s late and I don’t have much time to write, I thought I’d share it. Because it is just so damn funny.

I particularly like the way Wonder Woman rolls her eyes in response to Aquaman’s statement.

Interestingly, this clip seems to contain an oft misquoted line. (Actually, it’s one I remembered wrong.) Searching Google for the misquote (“my ability to talk to fish”) gets more hits (26) than the right version (“my ability to talk with fish”), which gets only 8 hits. Different pages on Wikipedia feature two versions of the misquote:

“My ability to talk to fish is of no use to us, Wonder Woman!”

and

“My ability to talk to fish is of no help, Wonder Woman!”

  1. God that was great! I **Really** miss the super friends!

    I had no idea that Aquaman had ever been misquoted. :)

    Did you think that Wonder Woman looked a little bit like Peggy Hill at the end when she blushed?
